4PL: Market Intelligence, Procurement Research, Supply Market Forecasts, Cost Drivers, Trends, Category Management Insights Now Available From SpendEdge

SpendEdge, a global procurement market intelligence firm, has announced the release of their Global 4PL Category – Procurement Market Intelligence Report.

The strategic move of the e-commerce giants to establish their own logistics network to minimize their operating cost will pose as a significant hindrance for the spend momentum of the 4PL category during the forecast period. However, the practice of outsourcing logistics operations by buyers to 4PL service providers to focus on their core operations and to achieve cost savings on their logistics needs will serve as one of the prime spend accelerators for the 4PL category.
